Estate and trust controversies are always highly sensitive and often complex. Our team at Burr & Forman represents clients at trial and in negotiation, often using our knowledge of effective tax and business planning to craft the best solutions. We have resolved a variety of will and trust contests (including contested bequests and charitable pledge disputes), up to and including at the state supreme court level.
Our litigation attorneys consult with trustees and other fiduciaries about their duties, potential litigation strategy, and other administrative issues. In addition, our team works with clients to litigate trust and estates disputes and other fiduciary claims.
Our attorneys are experienced in defending national and regional banking institutions in multi-million dollar breach of trusts cases. We successfully defend trustees and corporate entities against allegations of breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty, investment mismanagement, and fraud in multiple venues.
